Now that we have the improved Sony PS4 Slim, it’s time to pin it against the Xbox One S from Microsoft – which is also an improved version of a console. Here is a comparison between the two mini consoles based on specs and performance.
To begin with, both consoles are smaller but improved versions of an older console and their purpose is to eventually replace that original console on the market.
The PS4 Slim comes with an octa-core Jaguar CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz that also features integrated AMD graphics clocked at 800 MHz. It also has 8GB of DDR5 memory and 500 GB of internal storage space.
It can connect to the internet through Gigabit Ethernet, Bluethooth 4.0 and others and it has a Blu-Ray/DVD drive. It can support HDR, but it cannot do the same for 4K content.
Lastly, its dimensions are 11 x 10 x 1.5 inches and its weight is 4.6 pounds.
Xbox One S
The Xbox One S comes with an octa-core custom CPU clocked at 1.75 GHz that also features integrated AMD graphics clocked at 914 MHz. Much like the PS4 Slim, it has 8GB of DDR3 memory and 500 GB of internal storage space. It can also connect to internet through various functions and comes with a HDR/Blu-Ray drive that can also support 4K content, unlike the PS4 Slim.
Its dimensions are 11.6 x 8.9 x 2.5 inches and its weight is 6.4 pounds, which makes it somewhat heavier that the PS4 Slim. It should be noted that multiplayer is available on both consoles only through a subscription to PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live respectively.
There is another similarity between the two devices when it comes to their price because both cost $299. However, one has to admit that the better choice when it comes to buying one of the consoles is the Xbox One S for the 4K content support alone.
